Figure 3. The association between MOTS-c and muscle area and function. Thigh cross-sectional area (CSA) (A), maximal leg press load (B) and maximal leg press load relative to CSA (C) was correlated with muscle MOTS-c expression in older men. Significance was determined using linear regression or one-way ANOVA. Due to missing pQCT/leg press data n=24.
